Keum-boo is a beautiful and cost-effective technique used to bond pure gold and silver to the surface of jewelry and hollowware. 24k Keum-boo foil can be purchased commercially but rolling your own foil allows many possibilities for application as the foil can be much thicker and handled more easily. You will learn all the basics of rolling your own 24k gold or fine silver foil, applying it to three dimensional, flat, and textured metal surfaces, and techniques for finishing. Jayne will be demonstrating unique ways she has developed to use Keum-boo in production as well as one-of-a-kind work in silver and 18k gold.
